Dear friends in Chile, Argentina and Ecuador,
What I have seen during my stay in South America (Chile, Argentina and Ecuador) besides natural beauty, interesting cities and archaeological sites is the enthusiasm of our members on this southern continent.
Chile is working towards full membership and Argentina is growing very fast with members in different cities. They are working very hard towards associate or full membership. We have discussed the possibilities and they have taken the challenge with both hands. We are looking forward to welcome them.
The Interamerican Scout Conference in Quito, Ecuador, was a very tough conference where many resolutions were handled. ISGF was given much attention and we certainly opened their eyes when they watched the Scout & Guide Spirit Flame presentation. I received a long applause for this biggest project ever in ISGF history. In Ecuador we have only one member with whom I had a telephone call and he told me that he is working in excellent cooperation with the National Scout Organization.
I want to thank our members in Chile, Argentina and Ecuador with whom I had contact or spent some time. It was really very nice to have met you and build up the relationship and to have seen the enthusiasm of being a member of our organization.
Yours in Fellowship,
World Committee member
Central Branch coordinator.
